According to Al Auger: On a yearly basis I submit this story about Miles Davis on the anniversary of his death, September 28, 1991. It features a memorable interview with Miles and his Ferraris followed by a dramatic episode at the Monterey Jazz Festival illustrating a personality completely opposite the public view. This year, the Ferrari portion will appear in the September issue of AutoWeek, an internationally respected automotive and competitive magazine. The story has appeared often in The Reporter (my newspaper over the years), aScanCafe, Jazztimes and other long-forgotten publications.
